Thank you, thank you, thank you. This was most helpful. I am a senior citizen and like Pres. Trump and Hillary, I am sorely lacking in computer skills. This stuff does not come to me intuitively. I spent many years in the 1970s sueing state agencies on behalf of foster kids. This was the exciting era of childrens rights. Thus I very much wanted to jump on board here. When the computer age came upon us, many professionals simply relied on our secretaries to master these new skills. So I appreciate your tips and I have one for you: You can simply Google a topic plus the word pizzagate and get a list of postings when your own in-house search engine is down.. Thanks again.

The problem with Google is that it's known to censor this topic. DuckDuckGo is a similar search engine, but they don't seem to censor Pizzagate, and they're also pro-privacy.

Google has censored a single link and that is voat.co/v/pizzagate/, so it is completely irrelevant in terms of using google to search /v/pizzagate. It literally says it censored a single link in the DMCA description

In response to a complaint we received under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 1 result(s) from this page. If you wish, you may read the DMCA complaint that caused the removal(s) at LumenDatabase.org.

I'd be the first to notice if google was doing any deep level of cenorship. Right now, the search results for pizzagate are more reasonable than usual http://i.imgur.com/k9c65MQg.png

I've personally seen a click-bot docker farm in the size of 200k bots, they are used to manipulate search results and is a part of black hat SEO. You can rent them out like any other bot herd.

Non-technical users seem to have blown that whole thing out of proportion, hilarious at first and then obnoxious, but whatever - https://voat.co/v/pizzagate/1690808

Appreciate you coming here! Especially when battling with computer skills. It happens to many of us, even when we are used to computers, every forum takes a while to get used to.

You can also limit your google search to voat.co by doing a search like this where you add the site: parameter

are_we_sure site:voat.co

When posting old articles, put the date in the title.

Longtime lurker here. Excellent piece of work, made me finally become a little active here. If people seriously want to help the cause, they should put in every effort to do what this sticky suggests. The only thing I don't understand is why this post doesn't get more upvoats and is not commented upon more. Should be a fantastic opportunity to chime in with comments and suggestions and I will do that in due course.

A clear explanatory general annoucement like this is always a step in the right direction. Appreciated.

An observation - there is some kind of impenetrable wall, stronger than any Trump fever dream, between the site developers (haves) and the mods (border patrols), and us (have-nots). It's as if we are all supposed to accept as some natural law that "The developers are literally locked away in a tower of ivory on the moon's far side, and no communication may occur." Are they tripping inside "The Neverending Story"? It is my humble opinion that the mods should ask for more transparency from developers, because this place feels like it is run by techs who refuse to pause and see how their decisions from on high about stickys and gadgets affect the hoi polloi.

@PuttItOut DEVELOPERS - WITHOUT THE CRITICAL MASSES, YOU ARE ONLY THEORISTS, so reply to mods questions on our behalf please.
